Healthy vegan breakfast or snack recipe for those with a sweet tooth in the morning. These oat bran banana muffins are gluten-free and high in fiber. However, they don't taste healthy. They are sweet, moist, and full of flavor.
INGREDIENTS IN A OAT BRAN BANANA MUFFINS
- Oat bran: This is the outer layer of the oat groat. Oat bran is a good source of soluble fibers and is a base for these muffins. Use non-contaminated oat bran, certified gluten-free oat bran, if you have gluten sensitivity.
- Oat flour: Use non-contaminated for gluten-free muffins.
- Baking powder: To help the muffins rise.
- Coconut sugar: Amount of the sugar can be reduced. You can substitute coconut sugar, but I recommend using coconut sugar. Coconut sugar has a slight hint of caramel.
- Salt: To balance out the sweetness and enhance the flavor.
- Banana: Medium ripe bananas. Overripe bananas work too but can be too sweet.
- Aquafaba: This is a vegan egg replacer. Aquafaba is the liquid leftover from chickpeas. I used the liquid from cannellini beans and it worked perfectly.
TIPS FOR MAKING THIS RECIPE PERFECTLY
- When stirring whipped aquafaba into the banana-oat bran mixture, make sure not to over mix. Stir just until incorporated.
- To make sure your muffins are done stick the toothpick in the middle of muffins. If there’s a wet batter on the toothpick, it needs more time in the oven. If it comes out clean, your banana muffins are done.
- Once done, let the muffins cool for 3-5 minutes before removing from the pan. Transfer muffins to a cooling rack to cool off completely.
- Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
